Marsden Cove Marina

Welcome to Marsden Cove Marina

Located just inside the entrance to Whangarei Harbour, Marsden Cove Marina is an ideal point of entry to New Zealand with all tide access, Customs, 24/7 fuel jetty, a vessel haul-out service, and hardstand facility.  The 230-berth Marina resides in the centre of the Marsden Cove canal housing development.

A commercial centre offers a general store, restaurant and bar, fishing club while marina facilities include a lounge, laundry and ablution block.  Marine services include repair, painters, riggers, upholstery, marine electrical and diesel mechanics.  The sheltered, picturesque deep-water harbour offers access to some of world’s finest marine reserves and nearby fishing grounds.  Marsden Cove Marina is also the site of Northland’s most popular public boat ramp.

Operating 6 days per week, the haul-out ramp can accommodate vessels up to 12 metres wide, and the custom built Roodberg HBC80-VEL hydraulic slip-way trailer can carry vessels weighing up to 80 tonnes, to a maximum length of 35 metres. 

The 1-hectare hardstand facility has heavy-duty surface, video surveillance and secure fencing.  A dedicated washdown area is available for vessels requiring a quick “lift and wash”. For longer stays, certified weight-rated stands and cradles ensure vessels are properly balanced and secure.
